Last January, crisp giant Tayto started selling their own brand of milk chocolate at their Tayto Park in Ashbourne, County Meath, but fans wanted them to go that extra step further.
After receiving thousands of e-mails, tweets and Facebook posts begging them to create the perfect chocolate crisp bar, Tayto have done just that and released a chocolate bar infused with their famous cheese and onion crisps.
They are now on sale in a lot of shots in Louth and across the country.
